Double Redirects Policy

PatrickD Garvey
https://en.opensuse.org/index.php?title=Feature_Guide&redirect=no is a
redirect to
https://en.opensuse.org/index.php?title=Product_highlights&redirect=no
which is a redirect to
https://en.opensuse.org/index.php?title=Features&redirect=no which is
a redirect to
https://en.opensuse.org/Features_42.2

So, naturally only https://en.opensuse.org/index.php?title=Features
actually redirects all the way to
https://en.opensuse.org/Features_42.2

What is the openSUSE.org policy for such redirected redirects?

We haven't got any policy for redirects.
I used a redirect from Features to Features_42.2, because we need a new list of Features with every yearly release.
It is easier to handle it with a release number specific title and you can create a new redirect for the next version with "Features". All pages will be redirected to the right Feature page then.
You can see that with the Feature Guide for example.

Best regards,
Sarah
